He noted that the incident occurred near the Jimeta modern market around 7:00pm on Wednesday evening leading to the incineration of the tricycle the suspects were using.
“Four suspected Shila Boys have been badly injured and set ablaze by an angry mob who also burnt down their tricycle.
“But they were rescued by policemen whose prompt arrival saved an ugly situation.
“They were taken to hospital and are currently receiving treatment,” he said.
Following the escalation of the activities of the Shila Boys, a group of miscreants currently terrorising the state capital, residents have resorted to jungle justice.
Many suspected Shila Boys have been killed by angry mob in the state capital since the new scourge of jungle justice came into the state capital.
